Cape Town – South African actor Grant Swanby sat down with Channel24 to chat about the new film, Beyond the River

Inspired by the true story of Siseko Ntondini and Piers Cruickshanks, who together won gold in the 2014 Dusi, Beyond the River delivers a nail-biting adventure story about the triumph of the human spirit.

When Steve’s (Swanby) long-time partner decides to paddle with someone else, he is stuck without a partner to complete his 15th Dusi and possibly win his 10th gold medal. He reluctantly gives Duma (Lemogang Tsipa) a shot. (Read more about the film here)

Swanby tells Channel24 Beyond the River is a film everyone should go see.

"The most important thing I would like people to take from this film is that we are all the same. As human beings we come from different backgrounds and there's a huge narrative at the moment that is pulling us apart. It's important that we start to listen to each other."
